Gas line upgrades

    Columbia Gas of Ohio will be upgrading natural gas lines in Oregon next year, according to City Administrator Mike Beazley. “They have been going through a process of upgrading pipelines throughout the community. That was a notice they sent us - that they are going to be working in the community. Not on ever block and in every area. But they will be going through a general upgrade and refurbishing of their pipelines for safety purposes. Some residents will see that more than others, but it will be a multi-year project. They will be coordinating with the public service department as they get work in the right-of-way permits,” said Beazley.
